Grats to Mt Fuji for being granted World Heritage status by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) earlier on today!

Spent last Sunday near Mount Fuji doing some filming. Been living in Japan for about 13 years and realized that we should have done this more often!
Was a gorgeous sunny day and we were just in time for the Shibazakura (Moss Pink) season at the Shibazakura Festival.
This season only lasts until May 27th but if you cant make it this time then just keep an eye on the official site to see when you should be going next time.
Punch in the following address into your carnavi - tis located at Fuji Motosuko Resort.
山梨県南都留郡富士河口湖町本栖212

Beautiful Mount Fuji also known as "Fuji-san" - I believe there is a card for that.

We left Tokyo at about 7:30 AM and got to the area at about 9:30 - but then we discovered some caves which we went to explore. Luckily we arrived at the Shibazakura when we did because it started to cloud over and by the time we left, Fuji-san was completely covered in cloud.
